I am currently seeking abstracts in the area of Fat Studies for the 2008
North Central Sociological Association Conference (March 27-29; Hilton
Netherland Hotel Cincinnati). Sociologists and other sociologically
inclined academics and activists, in any stage of their career, are
welcome to submit an approximately 250-word paper proposal or a completed
paper. Topics may include, but are not limited to fat phobia, size
discrimination and group-based inequality; issues of fat embodiment,
sexuality and experiences of everyday shame; and possibilities for fat
personhood and the creation of a livable life. If you are interested in
presenting a research paper, email an abstract of your work to The deadline for NCSA abstracts is November 30, 2007.
Please include the appropriate contact information (name, institutional
affiliation, mailing address, phone, fax, and email). For general
information about the conference, check out the association's website at:
